Using a coffee scrub is a natural and healthy method of removing cellulite from the body.

Cellulite affects approximately 80-90% of women (1), but it also affects men, according to the latest data.

Cellulite reduction is now being researched widely and is one of the top searches on the internet. Based on current research, cellulite is a complex issue involving numerous causes and requiring proper treatment and management. (2)

But what are the best options for natural and healthy cellulite treatment?

The problem is not just cellulite caused by swollen fat in the skin’s dermis (connective tissue layer).

Cellulite can also be the result of reduced blood flow to the specific skin area. This may affect collagen production and, with tighter clothes, facilitate lymphatic drainage.

Age, gender, ethnicity, sedentary activity level, damaged skin, and unhealthy diet can all contribute to cellulite creation.

Natural solutions are available for skin exfoliation using a coffee scrub.

Several recipes can help fight cellulite, and one of these solutions uses coffee scrubs.

So, let’s look at how to make a DIY coffee scrub recipe at home that you can use to reduce the appearance of cellulite.

How to make coffee scrub for cellulite – Easy recipe

Time: 5 minutes

Amount: Just over 2 cups

What you need for this recipe:

  • • 1 cup of coffee (you can also use French coffee or espresso)
  • • ½ cup coconut oil or sweet almond oil
  • • ⅔ cup brown sugar, preferably coarse
  • • 4–8 drops of cinnamon essential oil (use half if you have sensitive skin)
  • • 8 drops of vanilla essential oil or one teaspoon of sweet vanilla

How to make the coffee scrub for reducing cellulite:

Add the coffee, coconut or sweet almond oil, brown sugar, and essential oils in a large bowl. Mix well to combine them thoroughly.

Pour the mixture into a jar, preferably a glass jar, due to the use of essential oils. A high-quality plastic jar may also work well. You can store this mixture in the refrigerator for up to one year.

How to use the coffee scrub mixture

After bathing or showering, gently massage the mixture into the skin, especially on areas with cellulite.

Applying the coffee scrub even on areas with barely visible cellulite is preferable.

The massage should be as intense as you can tolerate without causing pain to protect sensitive skin. It is crucial not to damage your skin further or cause bleeding.

Rinse thoroughly and dry the area with a soft towel.

Additionally, after applying this mixture, you may wrap the cellulite skin with plastic film. Leave the film on for half an hour before washing it off.

After the coffee scrub exfoliation, you should finish the process by applying a high-quality moisturizer cream. One such excellent cream for cellulite is one that contains grapefruit.

How coffee exfoliation works

You may notice some redness on your skin, but this is normal and temporary.

You may also notice some skin irritation or feel a slight discomfort. In these cases, next time, try grinding the coffee one more time, use finer-ground sugar, or omit the cinnamon oil.

Coffee exfoliates the skin, while caffeine helps dilate blood vessels and tighten the skin.

Coconut oil helps with hydration and has multiple powerful health benefits for the skin.

Sugar, mainly brown sugar, helps exfoliate the skin even better and more effectively.

Cinnamon essential oil helps dilate blood vessels, giving the skin a subtle “plumping” effect, thus reducing the appearance of cellulite.

Can these ingredients fight cellulite?

Those of you who have noticed cellulite on your skin are looking for answers on how to get rid of cellulite.

Researchers proved that coffee can reduce cellulite by 17%. (3)

However, coffee-based exfoliation cannot completely eliminate cellulite. You will find that the problem areas will be reduced, and the skin will have improved significantly.

This is because caffeine causes blood vessels to dilate, improving blood flow and tightening the skin.

Dark-spots-and skin-health

Coffee peeling works by two main mechanisms of action; the massaging effects and the direct effects of caffeine on adipose tissue.

The massage reduces tissue swelling and can stimulate the cell activity (4) that produces collagen.

At the same time, the coffee scrub reduces the activity of fat cells.

How often should you use the coffee scrub for cellulite?

For even better results, you can use this coffee mixture for cellulite and stretch marks 1–2 times a week for 2–3 months.

Remember also that toxins are one of the leading causes of cellulite.

To get rid of toxins, try an alkaline diet without processed foods. Reducing red meat intake, salt, and sugar is also crucial.

This reduction means adding more fresh fruit and vegetables because these foods help to detoxify the body as a whole (cells, tissues, and organs).

Stress hormones push you to consume more sugar and reduce the action of insulin. Stress also causes inflammation in the vessels and favors the secretion of antidiuretic inflammation.

Choose an exercise that suits you best to calm your mind and body. Ideally, you will prefer yoga or Pilates for best results.

Additionally, water is essential to prevent and reduce cellulite.

Fruits and vegetables, whole or in the form of juices, also offer hydration to the body.

Dark spots and wrinkles

However, beverages such as green tea will ensure antioxidant protection and hydration, while you should avoid coffee and black tea as drinks.

Also, many food supplements contribute to the body’s health, eliminating toxins and burning fat.
